Dr. Alison Synakowski, Facility Manager of Sports PT’s Saratoga clinic, will be running a Sportsmetrics™ program from February 4, 2013 through March 15, 2013 at the SPA Catholic High School. Dr. Synakowski is a certified Sportsmetrics™ trainer, and has successfully affected student athletes who have participated in this program in the past.
Sportsmetrics™ is proven to reduce the risk of knee ligament injuries, especially in female athletes. In addition, participants have also seen an increase in agility, strength, vertical jump height and power. Sportsmetrics™ is an evidence-based approach to reduce the risk of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries. This program is ideal for individuals who would like to reduce their risk of knee injuries as well improve performance in their sport. It is also appropriate for individuals who are returning from ACL surgery and need to improve their confidence and mechanics in order to return safely to sport. Many basketball, soccer and lacrosse players have seen significant improvements.
The components include:
- Dynamic warm-ups
- Jump training series
- Mechanics with jumping
- Agility, Strength, and Flexibility work outs
There is testing completed on the first and last day of the program to measure outcomes.
Classes run from 7-9pm on Mondays and Wednesdays, and 8-10am on Saturdays. Participants must complete all 18 sessions. Class size is limited to 12 participants. The cost is $150. To register, contact Dr. Synakowski at firstname.lastname@example.org or 518-583-7537. Don’t miss this great opportunity to get stronger, higher, and flexible!
